A federal judge said on Monday he likely will allow a lawsuit to move forward accusing cyclist Lance Armstrong and his business partners of defrauding the US Postal Service of endorsement money through Armstrong's use of performance-enhancing drugs.

Former Armstrong team-mate Floyd Landis brought the suit in 2010 under a federal law that allows whistleblowers to report fraud committed against the government in exchange for a reward.

The case is Landis v. Tailwind Sports Corp, et al, US District Court for the District of Columbia, No 1:10-cv-00976.
